Windows 7: Notification Icon Disappearing! Never happened before..

Notification Icon Disappearing! Never happened before..

URGENT! Another question arose!

I don't remember the exact date, but before, whenever I startup my laptop, I always have the Dolby notification icon in the bottom right.

But now, I don't know what I did, the notification icon never appears for Dolby. The settings for that icon is set to "Show" but whenever I click on it again, it says "This notification is currently not active." Eventhough, I'm pretty sure it's on.

I tried reinstalling, but I keep getting error messages once it's reinstalled. So I have to use System Restore, and this has been driving me nuts...and this keeps going in circles.

I think there is something wrong with the registry of this program.

When I go to the program location, I have a Dolby Profile Selector, Dolby Profile Editor, and Dolby Profile Launcher...I am so confused now, as I always had the Notification Icon available.

I can add Dolby to the Startup Folder, but when turning on the laptop, the entire Dolby profile pops up when Windows 7 boots, and that was not what happened before.

Now it's my OCD kicking in...can't sleeeepppp.....


Thanks in advance !!!!!

See if rebuilding the icon cache helps.

Icon Cache - Rebuild

You could also see if there are any damaged or corrupt system files that might be preventing the icon from displaying. Run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
